Biographical/Historical note

The Carroll Service Council was formed in 1942 with the goals of organizing service programs in five areas: religion, public welfare, industry, education, and agriculture. Through these programs, especially those dealing with child care and cooperative agriculture, the organization had a significant impact on Carroll County during the Great Depression and World War II. The Carroll Service Council remained active until 1968 when many of its programs were absorbed into other agencies or had become unnecessary due to technological and healthcare advancements.
